Long Description:
A memorial plaque to John Maurice Wingfield of the Coldstream Guards in St Peter's church, Tickencote.

The plaque reads -
Remember O Lord Thy Servant
Lieut. Col - Coldstream Guards
Fifty-one years Lord of the Manor of Tickencote
Born 1st February 1863 Died 27th April 1931

"John Maurice Wing­field (1863-1931), author of “Some Records of the Wingfield Family.” [ISBN: 0937543039] After service in the Coldstream Guards for some 18 years, John Maurice took possession of the Hall in 1904 and energetically set about moder­nizing it. He introduced central heating, redesigned the lighting and plumbing and created an extensive water garden (now be­ing restored by the current owners). The Hall continued to be used for the entertain­ment of family and friends but John Maurice was a bachelor and thus it was no longer a family home. In 1924, to quote his own words, he was “obliged to let the house and shooting owing to the very large increase in taxation.”"
